WCF service using HTTP Advanced Sensor - Content Type



Your Vote:



I have followed the instructions for configuring the HTTP Advanced Sensor for a SOAP web service but am still getting errors when trying to post the request. https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/66680-is-it-possible-to-test-a-wsdl-or-soap-service-with-prtg

HTTP/1.1 415 Cannot process the message because the content type 'text/xml; charset=us-ascii' was not the expected type 'text/xml; charset=utf-8'.

My custom content type is: application/soap+xml

My Custom HTTP Headers is as below. I have also tried removing the "Content-Type" value but the example shows it with it. Content-Type: text/xml SOAPAction:https://SomeWebService.net/xxxx/EstimateService Accept: application/soap+xml

Any suggestions on how to correct this?

Best, Lance
